Evening Meals On Wheels

 M4M Logo RGB new 2014

Join us in raising awareness and support for Evening Meals on Wheels in the Madison area. This important program--like other meals on wheels programs--matters in many different ways for seniors. Meals are delivered to homebound seniors who are unable to leave to buy groceries or have difficulty preparing meals after an illness or injury; meals also are delivered to seniors who simply want a balanced, nutritious meal. Plus, there are many seniors who struggle to afford a healthy meal and are dependent on support.

You can make a difference. Tell your senior friends about healthy home-delivered meals. Volunteer to deliver meals. Donate so that the cost of a meal is affordable even for our lowest income elderly. Thank you for taking action to make a difference! 

Grateful Appreciation for 2015 March for Meals Sponsors

Evening Meals on Wheels

Whether you want a hot, healthy meal on a temporary basis or would like meals for an indefinite period of time, you can enjoy daily evening meals made fresh by chefs and delivered to your door. Reviewed by a Registered Dietitian, the menus feature a wonderful range of delicious entrees. Special diets are accommodated, including vegetarian, diabetic and gluten-free.   

We have been involved with serving senior meals since 1973, and formally established the Evening Meals on Wheels program in 1991. It is the only Evening Meals on Wheels program in Dane County. In April 2010, our Evening Meals on Wheels Program earned Magnet Accreditation at the exemplary level from Meals on Wheels America, the national association. We are one of six, out of 994 MOWAA-member organizations, to be awarded this rare recognition.

Senior hunger is real, and we're doing our part to make sure no senior goes hungry. We are actively raising funds to support this program and seniors in need. We are a local, nonprofit organization that doesn't receive any federal funding for our Evening Meals on Wheels program. Instead, we rely on local support.

We also appreciate support from more than 250 volunteers who have opened their hearts and their cars to deliver evening meals. These volunteers help ensure that no senior goes hungry.  They also check on the person's well being, and their presence brightens that person's day. As one volunteer said, "I believe in what Independent Living does because I know first hand from my volunteer experience. It made me happy to put smiles on clients' faces and chat for a minute." Our thanks go out to all volunteers, and to all donors who contribute financially to our program. Thank you for making a difference.
